Doula Training

Our students come to us with a common goal of improving the labor and birth experience for families.

Regardless of where you are in your doula journey, we have a workshop for you.

In our Birth Doula Training Workshop, aspiring doulas learn the skills to provide excellent service to all supported families.  Our evidence-based instruction covers

  • Benefits of doula support,
  • History of birth, and
  • Hands-on techniques to help start your journey.

This is your first step toward obtaining your DONA birth doula certification.

Our DONA-approved Advanced Doula Training Workshop (12 CEU’s) is designed for experienced birth doulas who want to expand their practice into the home birth and birth center settings.

Become a Doula

A birth doula is someone who provides physical, emotional and informational support before, during and immediately after childbirth.

Doulas are also trained to assist with normal breastfeeding. They are good at recognizing when to refer a woman and baby to a lactation specialist for more in-depth assessment and assistance.
